Dexter Lumis Not Competing At NXT TakeOver XXX, Matches To Determine Replacement Set For 8/19 NXT

Dexter Lumis' current ankle injury will not allow him to compete at NXT TakeOver XXX.

This past week on NXT, Lumis suffered an osteochondral lesion of the talus due to the targeted attacks by Timothy Thatcher. Lumis, Thatcher and Finn Balor competed in a triple threat match last week with Lumis winning and qualifying for the NXT North American Title Ladder Match at TakeOver XXX.

Unfortunately, that injury will prevent him from being medically cleared to compete at TakeOver. With an open spot now available, NXT General Manager William Regal announced that there will be two singles matches featuring the four men who have not been pinned or submitted in previous qualifying matches in recent weeks. The three men that we know that have not been pinned or submitted are Ridge Holland, Johnny Gargano and Balor.

The fourth person that would be in that last chance qualifier will be revealed next week as Kushida, Cameron Grimes and a mystery third opponent will compete in their triple threat match.
